    The Club visited the Detroit Model Railroad Club in Holly Mi in March for a photo shoot. Was a fun time as in past visits. This also allow for the club to do some learning experience on several post editing programs. The Model Railroad Club has used several of the Clubs photos in their calendars in the past.

    There is a new category added to the competition/review list.        (Cell Phone)

    We have added new members to the club all year. I would like to welcome them all, and hope that they will be able to learn and grow with all of our members. 

    We had a field trip to the Steam Engine Society in Owosso, in early spring. Was given a tour of the yard, Engines work shop and round table for Photo opportunities. Had several members attend.

     The club started an Instagram page last spring. (Looking for a member to take charge of this.)  The HUB will connect to this page They would like us to post photos of Flint and activities in Flint and surrounding area that they can then post on there page. They are looking for photos that make a connection with Flint and greater Flint area. In need of a member to take charge of this.

It allows members to see the creativeness of other members and to question and learn new Technics and methods of taking as well as editing their own photos. Members are ask to bring their photos on a thumb drive to the 2nd meeting of the month (3rd Thurs), they are loaded to the club laptop for viewing. Photos need to be grouped together by categories for ease of loading to computer. Each member is encouraged to elaborate on their photos but not required ( what inspired them to take the photo, where, when & how, any special editing or procedures used to take the photo). And ask for or share tips for improving their photos as well.
